La Bota de Palo Cortado 52
Equipo Navazos is effectively a sherry negociant - seeking out the best, oldest soleras from their favourite bodegas and bottling them. Unlike most sherries, these are all unfiltered.
The Palo Cortado is the most mysterious of sherry styles. It starts as a Fino, but loses it’s ‘flor’ thus developing a style in between an Amontillado and an Oloroso.
Jancis Robinson: "Brighter yellow than the 9. Deeper, less open nose, a hint of caramel. A certain sweetness. Hint of whisky. Broad and smoky." 18 Points
